To have only four teams … Continue reading Which Winless Team Will Be the Last to See the Light?
This has got to just be excruciating as a fan of UMass football. A 29-21 loss to the Temple Owls tonight means that the Minutemen are already 0-2 in one-possession games this season, which is nothing new for a team that is now 2-16 in such games since the start of the 2013 season. This … Continue reading UMass Minutemen Drop Another One-Possession Game to Temple Owls 29-21, Fall to 0-4

We're rumbling, bumbling, stumbling to the epic conclusion of Watch List Watch, which receives a merciful end Thursday with the Walter Camp.

This morning, watch lists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy (Presented to the nation’s most outstanding defensive player) and Outland Trophy (Presented to the nation’s most outstanding interior lineman) were released to an adoring public. So beefy! As usual, we're concerned not … Continue reading The Forgotten adds serious beef to The Outland and Nagurski watch lists!
